BBC Radio Leeds Phone-In: Should Children Attend Funerals?

Published: 24.06.2017

I had the pleasure of taking part in a phone in on the Andrew Edwards Show earlier this week. The topic "Should Children Attend Funerals?" was sparked off when Prince Harry spoke to the American magazine, Newsweek, and said the following:

My mother had just died, and I had to walk a long way behind her coffin, surrounded by thousands of people watching me while millions more did on television. I don’t think any child should be asked to do that, under any circumstances. I don’t think it would happen today.

Radio Leeds looked at the issue of children attending funerals at all. I was invited along to speak with Andrew and with guests about this. Click the link below to hear the full conversation.
